I'm sorry, it's an approximate body length. Also, thanks for the assistance with identification.

What it is 1 cm? The wingspan size, one wing or the body? :) It's not about sizes anyway. According to Noctuidae Europaeae, vol. 13, there are two Chelis species in the North Caucasus — maculosa honesta and cecilia cecilia, the latter has usually more active black pattern on its hindwings. I'd doubt the accuracy of identification even as the moth was spread.

The moth is about 1cm.

Moved to C. cecilia "uncertain".

Chelis cecilia, the identification questionable.
